Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires (ITBA) was founded on November 20th, 1959 and, on account of Law 14.557, it became one of the first private universities of Argentina.
With the purpose of creating an institution specifically devoted to teaching engineering and sea-related sciences, ITBA took its first steps under the vision of Vice-Admiral Carlos A. Garzoni, one of its founders and main sources of inspiration, who served as Chancellor for several years during the early days of the organization and development of the University.
In the beginning, the University developed its activities in a building located at Cuba 1930, City of Buenos Aires. Later on, in 1965, it moved to its current location in Avenida Eduardo Madero 399. Today, the University has expanded geographically and now has several campuses.
Currently, ITBA has over 7,000 graduates who develop activities in the professional arena, in state-owned institutions, private companies, or have their own business ventures or projects, which are highly successful.
The academic activities started in 1960, when the first class began its studies. Over the years, the number of students increased significantly, while other areas of expertise were also included.
